HISTORIC COLLECTIONS RESEARCH CENTRE (HCRC)
Through recording, preserving and valuing Irish history, the HCRC will be an internationally-significant resource in post-1948 modern Irish politics, culture and society. HCRC will acquire personal, corporate and social movement archives, which will be professionally catalogued and conserved to preserve their integrity.
This new centre in the DCU Library will house research, digitisation, storage and exhibition facilities to make this important era in Irish history available for study. Collections on display will build on our existing collections that include the Charles J. Haughey papers, Sean Lester diaries and the first Irish Media History Collection.
